Journey to Extraordinary Series

Todd Beane
Journey to Extraordinary Series


From TOVO Academy to DC United.

Joaquin has certainly taken full advantage of his time in Spain and is now enjoying
the benefits of his commitment. He has retuned home to earn a spot at the DC
United Academy.

Each ambitious athlete that comes to Barcelona has a clear agenda – a desire to
play the game at the highest level possible. Each in turn uses TOVO as a springboard
to future success on and off the pitch.

“To be honest, Joaquin came to us as an incomplete player. To his credit he trained
hard, committed to the details and improved tremendously. He changed his destiny
one training at a time. We are very proud of this young man,” shares Todd Beane.

“Before I came to TOVO I did not really understand the game. After training, I began
to see the game in a whole new way that was easier for me to understand. Now, I
am better mentally and also more responsible,” explains Joaquin.

Joaquin’s journey to extraordinary continues and we wish him all the best as he
pursues his dreams.
